Description: Located in the heart of the Pennines, this loungey little bar and restaurant in Littleborough provides the perfect pitstop for weary sightseers and is a cosy spot popular with locals for intimate evening meals and superb Sunday roasts. The Waterside Restaurant and Bar has a stylish and comfortable interior decorated with chocolate brown sofas and high-backed leather booths for semi-private dining, and there is an al fresco terrace for sunny outdoor dining during the warmer months. Famous for its roasts, the kitchen at Waterside offers a variety of options from the minted lamb shoulder to the salted pork crackling and roasted Tunisian lemon chicken. Fish fans will also love the seafood selection ��� we love the smoked haddock lasagne with Atlantic shrimps and wilted spinach.

“Great night at the waterside”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

Although this place is a little more expensive than other restaurants in the area as my daughter had a taste card we thought we would pay a visit. Wonderful selection of unique and different starters. We were more than happy with the service and the food was amazing. The steaks are highly recommended and the chips are sublime. Excellent wine menu and wonderful place to enjoy either a romantic meal for two or a family occasion. The owner was very hands on and welcoming and we will certainly be going back.

“Top notch food and setting”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

The main road location might not seem ideal, but the owners have made a fantastic job of the Waterside. The food is really excellent and, whilst priced as a treat not an everyday staple, we look forward to the times we can take ourselves there to eat.
Take friends, sit outside on a nice day, get an ice cold drink and order yourself some of the small portions to share. What a fantastic way to spend an afternoon out of work!

“an absolute gem!”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

A last minute birthday meal outing found us in a very quiet Waterside restaurant (post-Easter lull maybe?). From start to finish we had a fantastic experience - we sat in one of the booths which are both comfy and stylish. The décor is lovely- warm, contemporary and welcoming. The food was the star of the occasion however - probably the best meal we've had all year. The starter of coconut prawns knocked our socks off - freshly cooked and totally delicious, didn't want them to end! Then on to mains - my tower of fish was superb, all the fish cooked just right. My husband raved about his steak so I definitely had to have a try and it really did melt in the mouth! Wine and beer were good and dessert wine and cappuccino with a little sugary swizzle stick finished the meal off a treat. The staff were so attentive, knowledgeable and polite it was a complete pleasure to eat there. We enquired about the gluten free menu for when we bring friends and the reply was helpful and positive, giving the impression that they really care about the customer experience. With the addition of a voucher for money off on our next visit, you won't be able to keep us away!
